    I have been working at SnapLogic as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Fast pace environment without feeling overwhelmed
    -Small enough that you see the fruits of your labor yet large enough to feel significant (large accounts with more being announced soon)
    -Free lunches and happy hours
    -Friendly co-workers
    -Management treats you like an equal which is probably the best element of working here

    Cons

    -Because they are in the growing stage there isn't a lot of off-sites or other odd incentives that are so common in Silicon Valley. If you are new to the area this will hardly be an issue.
    -People are always in and out of the office so the place can be dead at times.

    The technology platform is great, but the company has execution problems.

    Pros

    Outstanding integration platform - best architecture for enterprise cloud integration. The technology is extremely scalable and open to extension for enterprises, while being extremely easy to use. No real competition for enterprise grade cloud integration.

    Cons

    Company has ongoing execution issues which prevent it from getting repeatable sales. Sr. Mgmt does not actively promote cross-functional communications, and operates from a top-down, command and control style. The company veers from crisis to crisis in a transactional manner, so its difficult for each function to scale and get efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the mid-market so the functional groups can become efficient as compared to reactionary.

    Pros

    - Corporate headquarters in vibrant San Mateo
    - A few talented engineers
    - Free food

    Cons

    What really sunk this company ignited when they let go a very popular and effective VP Sales. Then the CEO and VP Field Opers took over Sales, both of whom never carried a bag. Both could only draw from experiences at Informatica, during the dot com era when virtually any average salesperson could do well. Their management since then has been nothing short of disastrous. They couldn't understand long sales cycles, how every customer wanted the technology proven via POC, nor could they understand why POC's never resulted in sales because the product was just plain shoddy. The product barely does what every other integration product has done since the late 1990's, thus no differentiation. The piece they had that enabled cloud integration did not perform. Couple that with a disinterest in marketing and lead gen and you have poor new license revenue growth. To make matters worse, they brought in totally laughable mid-level sales managers who breed resentment and incompetence. Thus a major exodus has transpired, from almost all of sales to senior execs in development, finance, legal and HR. Rumor has it that the VC's have stopped funding and they are operating under a bank loan. Time to find a buyer…

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to move on. You should have brought in leaders that new how to thrive in this new era of technology. Stop calling yourself a startup, you've been in business since 2006 and have had several failed business models, including this one.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working at SnapLogic. People here are very helpful and encouraging. Everyone gets a long and works hard. Every Friday, everyone gets together for Snappy hour and also have team-bonding activities like bowling and go-kart racing.

    Great space to be in but very challenging and complex. I am very thankful that SnapLogic had the courage to give me an opportunity to jump start my career in software.

    Cons

    Personally it was a hard decision to move on. The problem I had might only applied to myself, but I was looking for growth and a career path within inside sales/business development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in your team and help people build a career path.

    I worked at SnapLogic full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very difficult to think of any tangible pros.

    The Pay is 'ok' and at the low end market average
    The benefits are ok, and fully paid (employee only)
    Option grants are ok and at low Average for this type/age of Start-up
    Corporate office Bennies (free food, snacks, Beverages, Booze on Fridays at Happy Hour) are pretty typical for a Sil Valley company, nothing special but nice to have. (Meaningless to Field Employees)
    Some very smart and dedicated people, (but these are few, and are fleeing fast)
    Decent VC backing, but they are becoming
    A good Product base, the premise behind the platform is sound, and unique in this space.

    Cons

    1. Very poor leadership, no direction is given and everything (sales, ops, Eng) is in desperation mode.
    2. The best talent (sales, Eng etc) is leaving as fast as they can
    3. The product is half baked at best, and the new version is no where near ready (was forced out too soon by management, with no plan how to get existing customers upgraded, and its also lacking significant functionality available in the previous version)
    4. Leadership takes the attitude that if your not happy here then quit.
    5. The mantra is 'we are a start up, deal with it' is repeated ad nausea, constructive criticism from the rank and file is at best given lip service, and typically ignored all together.
    6. Product is priced way above the market., Ego at the leadership level wont change to meet market conditions.
    7. Lack of any type of repeatability or long term strategy in Sales.
    8. Some serious Ego without results in Sales and Leadership
    9. No marketing. You cant sell what people dont know about.
    10. Company reacts to criticism by placing forced fake reviews on Glassdoor (its obvious to everyone)
    11. Tremendous trun-over in Sales leads to constant new sales team ramp and further delays any type of repeatable go to market wins
    12. Mid level managers are either petty tyrants or completely incompetent, no direction or transparency to the rank and file.
    13. A very crowded and mature space, (integration) with no real strategy or plan how to deferentiate the offering and win customers.
    14. Lack of repeatability and sales means burn rate is high and VC funding is hard to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too little too late is clearly not going to save you. A year ago you might have a had a chance, best you can hope for now is a larger player to scoop you up.

    I worked at SnapLogic full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, free food, modern office.

    Cons

    Product doesn't work (for the most part). Many of their listed customers no longer use the product. Sales Management is way out of touch, they even try to give licenses away. One manager lost every deal he inherited and treats you like you just got out of college. Micro management is just off the charts. Marketing doesn't deliver a thing although there were huge promises 6-8 months ago. In last 7 months, 11 salespeople have left as well as almost all of the senior technology people. Even the sole HR person left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pray you can sell what little intellectual property you have.

    still trying to establish itself as a key player in the game
    numerous new members of core leadership team so hard to gage longer term success plan

    continue to develop a culture of elasticity, scalability and accountability

    Once in a lifetime opportunity

    I have been working at SnapLogic full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have seen my career take shape while working at SnapLogic. Working with A players, you have to step your game up and this experience has taken my game to the next level. I've had the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds and companies in the world. From attending meetings at Andreessen Horowotiz to working with partners like Amazon, Box, Salesforce.com, Zuora, Splunk, SAP, Twitter, ServiceNow, to customers like GE, Target, Dannon, Experian, Pandora, TOMS Shoes, Newscorp, AMEX, ING and others, I've expanded my network and also had a chance to make a real impact in the world of cloud computing and SaaS.

    Along those lines, SnapLogic has a work hard, play hard mantra. You can even bring your pets and/or your kinds into work! We have an open bar, happy (snappy) hour every friday, lots of basketball shooting competitions, robot wars, nerf gun fights and free meals but we support our teammates to the fullest. Even if that means working nights and weekends. Everyone is bought into one common mission and is working towards a single goal. The executive team is very seasoned and the investors are top notch. Free benefits!!

    Working at a start up is a gamble but joining this start up was a no brainer. Since the rise of Cloud applications is now becoming a reality, Enterprises are looking for a new modern solution that fits this hybrid world. Software is eating the world and SnapLogic is smack in the middle of it. These types of opportunities only come along once in a lifetime.

    Cons

    Its a start up. You are going to wear many hats and works lots of hours. You dont always get to finish projects you start on. This type of environment isn't for everyone and I've seen people get burned out. Needs a better marketing presence to take advantage of a market that is ready to move to the cloud.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advantage of your talent. Give them more responsibility and promote from within.

    I worked at SnapLogic full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary
    Great perks: 100% paid health insurance, in-house lunch several times per week, happy hour every Friday
    Majority of employees are very talented experts in their fields

    Cons

    Very negative, hostile work environment
    While cash comp is good, the company is very stingy with equity and ownership
    Seniority is valued over merit - the company has an extremely high employee churn rate
    Regular rounds of mass firings
    A-List talent doesn't stick around for very long
    Opaque, secretive Exec Team
    Exec Team spends more time in planning meetings than getting things done
    Frequent yelling matches behind closed doors
    Personal agendas and subterfuge are the rule not the exception
    Incompetent and dictatorial top-down management style
    Managers seem like they're always angry and stressed out
    No real opportunity for advancement. Many employees feel stuck in their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees respect and encouragement rather than a browbeating; you may see better results.
